What is best temperature setting for water heate


120°-125F is safest temperature.
Typical bath-shower is 104-110°F but rarely higher.
130°F can burn the skin in about 1 minute
Serious burns occur in seconds with 140°F and higher.
Use a cooking thermometer to check temperature coming out of tap ... if hot is slow to arrive and never seems to arrive, make sure all single handle faucet cartridges are up to date.

Water heater


Most instant-on tankless water heaters require at least 10 psi of water pressure to start the heating process. The flow of water determines how hot the water will be, within the heating range. An electric 110 volts heater will increase the water temperature about 25 degrees F. A gas water heater will increase the water temperature about 45 degrees F.
Too much flow will not allow the water time to heat. Too little flow will not allow the heating system to work. Each heater must have the outflow water flow adjusted for the best heating outcomes. The best way to find the ideal flow is to turn the hot water facet on and adjust it (open or close) until the water reaches the balance of producing hot water.

Will well water cause a problem on the heat pump water heater


I would say yes.
Because element may not be easy to replace, or easy to reset unit after replacement
I would also suggest not buying heat pump... must be in at least 10'x10' room with 7" space around entire heater

Heat Trap Nipple which side into the tank


Don't install heat trap nipples if house has pressure issues, or pipes get clogged with hard water.
Heat traps will clog, and whistle, hum, buzz, and reduce household pressure.
Make your own heat traps by configuring pipes differently.
http://waterheatertimer.org/9-ways-to-save-with-water-heater.html#heat-trap
http://waterheatertimer.org/Low-hot-water-pressure.html#trap

Buy regular di-electric nipples at local box store plumbing department instead of heat trap nipples.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/IMG_1879-di-electric-nipple-300.jpg

If you go ahead and install the heat-trap nipples, look inside the nipple.
Look past the plastic bar that divides down middle.
Notice that one end has insert inside the pipe. While other end does not have insert.
End with insert goes into water heater first.

Notice also if you blow into the heat trap nipple that air flow is constricted.
If air flow is constricted, then water will also be constricted.
This is why heat trap nipples are not recommended.

Why do they have heat trap nipples??
So manufacturers can report higher EF energy efficiency rating for product.

Do heat traps save money. Yes, but make your own by reconfiguring pipes. Save $9.20 per year electric heater, $4.00 per year gas heater.
You can save more money by maintaining water heater, which pays about 10$ per month in future replacement costs.
Or fix leaks, and install dual-handle faucets so lifting single handle faucet in middle does not continually run cold water into tank. This saves $2-$8 per month.

Every time we put on the central heating our water runs cold


What kind of water heater do you have?
In any case, it sound like a plumber should check out system.

Do you have indirect heater that gets heat from central heating boiler?
Most indirect/boiler combo heaters have control that is set to heat the water first.
If water is not getting heated, then the control needs repair.

Do you have gas water heater with gas central heating?
The central heater may be drawing so much gas from meter, that other gas appliances are unable to function. larger gas meter or gas line may be needed.
Or if furnace and water heater vent on same chimney, the backflow from central heat could be affecting burner on water heater especially if water heater has electronic sensor that stop combustion if air quality is bad. Venting problems can lead to CO poisoning, and are a serious matter.

Central heating and hot water have suddenly stopped working


not an engineer but maybe a heating compant,, it sounds like you have a relay that has gone bad, you have what we call a winter summer system your domestic water comes from a tank inside the boiler, you might want to think about splitting the system to save you some money in the long run, seperate the water heater from the boiler so you only heat up in the winter, right now you are heating the system that heats your house to get 30 or 40 gals of domestic hot water, it would cost you less by seperating them
